greywolf Posted April 17, 2010 Share Posted April 17, 2010 So, I've never had a lot of friends. I had friends when I went to a college in another country, but when I came here to the U.S. and started going to college here, I never made friends. It never bothered me, because I've always been kind of reclusive and I knew that it was just because I didn't put myself out there (or so I thought). I go to a new college now, and I have actually been trying to be really friendly with everyone. Not desperate-creepy friendly... but talking to people who sit next to me about school and homework. The reason for this thread is that today during our lunch break, I went to the student break room and all the girls in my class were sitting together at a table. I stopped by their table to ask them something about school. All the seats were taken so I sat at another table and ate lunch by myself. I don't mind sitting by myself. It doesn't bother me, but I started thinking, if I had been sitting at that table and my classmate went to go eat by themselves, I would have offered to make some room, or tell them to push their table next to ours. And these are not classmates that I just have one class with. Several of them have been my classmates in previous classes. We've sat next to each other before, shared homework, etc., so they all know me. I wondered if maybe I'm just really nice so that I shouldn't expect the same from others, but honestly, I don't think so. 'Nice' is usually not a word people use to describe me. It's just a little discouraging because I've finally decided to put effort into being friendly with people, instead of always keeping to myself, and no one really cares to be around me lol.
